Invisalign Clear Braces
One of the most apparent smile flaws is crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth. But many adults are reluctant to correct misaligned teeth because they think their only option is metal braces.
However, advances in dentistry make it possible for you to straighten crooked teeth in Pen Argyl without the need for metal brackets and wires. Today, using Invisalign clear braces, we can help you get the straight smile you want, and most people won’t notice you’re wearing them.
Invisalign: A Modern Solution for an Age-Old Problem
For decades, traditional braces that covered your teeth was the only option. But because materials, techniques, and dental technology have advanced so far, we can offer our patients Invisalign clear braces.
If you’re worried about the aesthetics of your smile during treatment, Invisalign is a discreet solution. At Dental Wellness of Pen Argyl, we know how important it is to have a healthy, beautiful smile at all times, and Invisalign not only achieves this but improves the healthy alignment of your teeth.
Benefits of Choosing Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign clear aligners offer many advantages over more traditional methods of realignment such as metal bracket and wire braces:
- Invisalign is discreet and won’t impact the appearance of your smile.
- Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth plastic material that doesn’t irritate the inside of your mouth as metal braces do.
- Invisalign helps you achieve the desired results in less time than traditional braces.
- Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat your favorite foods and brush and floss easily.
- Invisalign corrects cosmetic tooth misalignment but can also be used to address dental bite problems like overbites and underbites.

How Invisalign Treatment Works
Once Dr. Burke determines that Invisalign will help you achieve your goals, the process is as follows:
Our dentists will take photos, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth that they use to plan your treatment. Using Invisalign software, we map out a plan to move your teeth into the desired position.
Customizing Your Clear Aligners
We send your treatment plan to an Invisalign lab that customizes several sets of clear aligners. Each set of aligners is used to move your teeth to a certain extent over two weeks. Then you change to the next set of aligners and wear them for two weeks.
Wearing Your Invisalign Aligners
You will receive anywhere between 20 and 30 sets of aligners, and you’ll wear each for 22 hours a day for two to three weeks. Patients who have more complex alignment issues or bite problems may receive as many as 50 sets.
During this period, we’ll have you come to our Pen Argyl dental office periodically to check on your progress. You finish your treatment when you've used your last set of aligners, which usually takes 12 to 15 months.
